AB - Compressive strength of cylindrical specimens of a model material and sandstone with various diameter/height (d/h) ratios was determined in unconfined compression tests. It was observed that the compressive strength increases with increase in d/h ratio. Triaxial compression tests were also conducted on the specimens of the same materials with a d/h ratio of about 0.47. It was observed that the axial stress at failure increases with increase in confining pressure. A very interesting correlation was found between the effect of d/h ratio on compressive strength in unconfined compression tests and the effect of confining pressure on axial stress at failure in triaxial tests. The relationships between d/h ratio and confining pressure, s3 in MPa are:- For model material - s3 = -0.95 + 1.7957*(d/h) 0.7883. For sandstone - s- (-0.4554 + 0.9888* (d/h) 1.0355. The correlation coefficients for these equations are 0.9997 and 1. These equations are valid for d/h ratios of up to 10.
